Rainy Days

 You do manage to come away with odd things from IKEA sometimes. These beads however are probably the best impulse buy I have made there. Great for rainy days, hours of amusement and they can do it by themselves. I just have to do the ironing to melt the beads together at the end.

So fun! I remember going to my Grandma's house over summer break and making her all kinds of these, adding magnets to the back and she would put them on her fridge. :) I need to go to Ikea to get this! Among other things!

Looks like lots of fun. I'm hoping to go to IKEA soon, I'll have to look for them.

I have been looking for the beads that you iron together - now I know where from I will have to make a visit!

Just like Hama beads! We have been doing them too at our house, although the making has mostly been driven by the 25 year old.

Yay!~ I have a friend who has a complete obsession with these. Hama beads are the original and they make all sorts of shaped peg-boards which the ikea beads also fit onto - they have fantastic inspiration books (very cheap) that show you how to make all sorts of amazing things - christmas decorations, cartoon faces. brilliant stuff. I know Lincraft stocks them - but I think you can get them all over the place really!
